"You see that all around the world, where we are in a significant new phase of the pandemic. And we must now act to respond to what COVID-19 is doing in our province, to get our own house in order for the cold weather ahead," Dix said. 

He said that if we ever want to have normalcy back, we need to follow public health guidance and advice right now. 

There are currently 2,945 active cases in the province, 90 of which are in the hospital. 

Of the new cases reported, 47 were kids under the age of 10.
